    I'm just playing with WP 1.5 at the moment, to see what it can do. The biggest thing i'm looking for is the ability for my pages to hack into the wp templates - most importantly, the user login system. So ideally, if i want to, say, add a custom user feature, my feature can rely on WP to authenticate the user and return details.

    I've had a look through the codex and the old wiki, searched the forum and tried some code (eg seeing what's in $_SESSION) to no avail - anyone done this yet?

    Cheers, Adam

    I also am looking into this. So far, no luck. I'm leaning towards Expression Engine, otherwise. I'd love to hear what anyone has done in this area.

    There certainly IS a way... I'm not sure off the top of my head how. If you bring in wp-blog-header.php, you get a ton of stuff you don't really need. It used to be you could just use wp-config, but I'm not sure that wp1.5 has the security calls included there or not. Maybe one of the devs can comment.

    In my previous hacks, I did this stuff ALL over the place, in order to provide $user_level based checks and features for administrative functions or access to secondary pages that normal users (level 1 or unregistered) wouldn't see. So it is definitely doable.

    If a dev with the info doesn't get back to this thread, throw another ping in here and I'll try to take a look at some point.
